Just in time for cold and flu season. (Product watch).The new antideoxyribonuclease B (Dnase B) test is a fully automated immunoassay Immunoassay
An assay that quantifies antigen or antibody by immunochemical means. The antigen can be a relatively simple substance such as a drug, or a complex one such as a protein or a virus. which runs on Beckman Coulter's IMMAGE immunochemistry Immunochemistry
A discipline concerned both with the structure of antibody (immunoglobulin) molecules and with their ability to bind an apparently limitless number of diverse chemical structures (antigens); with the structure, organization, and rearrangement system and aids the diagnosis and management of streptococcal-based infections. The assay is intended for the quantative determination of human antibodies to DnaseB in serum samples. A reliable test for both skin and throat infections, the assay expands the streptococcal streptococcal /strep·to·coc·cal/ (-kok´al) pertaining to or caused by a streptococcus.
Pertaining to any of the Streptococcus bacteria. test panel on the IMMAGE system. The assay also helps diagnostic labs increase testing sensitivity to streptococcal-based infections, including patients with acute rheumatic fever, acute glomerulonephritis, Sydenham's chorea, scarlet fever, pharyngitis pharyngitis
Inflammation and infection (usually bacterial or viral) of the pharynx. Symptoms include pain (sore throat, worse on swallowing), redness, swollen lymph nodes, and fever. , and other group A illnesses.
